My husband and I absolutely LOVED working with Jesse at Owl and Tree. From the very beginning, Jesse was super personable and you could tell that he wanted to make sure that we got everything that we wanted and more. I had looked around a lot to compare pricing, before we went... Read More with Owl and Tree, and their prices were SO reasonable for everything that you get in the package! Jesse was there all day on our wedding day and he made sure to catch all of the awesome little moments and details. We just received our short video from the wedding and we were in tears being able to relive the day all over again. Brides - what you've heard is true - you will regret not having a video to remember your big day. Pictures are wonderful but it was so awesome to be able to go back and see and listen to all the little details that you might have forgotten because trust me, that day goes by so fast! Besides that, the quality of the video was awesome. I had so many people tell me that they had never seen a wedding video before that was like ours (it was like a movie!). We HIGHLY recommend Owl and Tree - you will love them!!

Jesse was absolutely amazing in every way, professional and fun, made us feel so comfortable, was able to get our vision right away, and provided us with the BEST wedding video.

If you are looking for a videographer, go no place other than Jesse. His work is beautiful and classic. Jesse was with us from the early start to our wedding day up until the last guest left our wedding; he works so hard to capture everything to ensure your video turns out... Read More great. We hardly noticed him throughout the whole day because it always felt like he was just our friend attending the wedding! Highly recommend, he is the best!

There aren’t enough stars on this rating scale to give to Jesse and his team. They shot our wedding a few months ago and it was hands down the best investment we almost didn’t make in our wedding. I knew I wanted fantastic photos but thought “is video footage something that we... Read More can save budget on?” THANK THE LORD We decided this was important because I tell you what — we’ve watched our beautiful video every.single.day over and over since Jesse sent it to us 2 months ago. And so have our family and friends. Jesse is SO NICE and easy going and he literally stealthily is everywhere filming the best stuff without you even noticing!!!! Our video makes me (and everyone else that watches it, seriously!!) SOB cry... the real ugly type of cry.... Jesse is beyond talented and captured our love and the most important day of our lives in a way that is truly indescribable. I guess you’ll just have to go watch his videos to see what I mean!!! Thank you Jesse and team — by far the best investment we made for our wedding and footage that we will cherish for LIFE.

We confidently recommend Jesse from Owl & Tree. He was a joy to work with - from first contact through final video receipt. He is honest and professional, and was a joy to have by our side on our wedding day (though to be honest, we didn't even notice his team there for most of... Read More the big day!). He had the camera rolling from first thing that morning through the final dance of the night, and captured the tiniest details with care. Jesse created a brilliant work of wedding video art that we will cherish for a lifetime of happy tears on each viewing. Jesse is a gifted artist, who wants nothing more than to make the wedding video you've dreamed of. Hiring Owl & Tree Films was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding journey. You should absolutely, unreservedly make the same choice.

Jesse is SUCH a sweetheart and an absolute JOY to have film your wedding day.

He provided everything that was promised in beautifully wrapped packaging. Extremely glad we went with Jesse. Couldn't imagine having this great of an experience with anyone else.

Jesse was incredible to work with. He responds quickly, has a great personality, and made my life as a bride much easier. That right there is priceless! Everything leading up to the wedding was so smooth, I never had any worries. On the day-of, he and his second videographer... Read More were punctual and ready to go. Everything was seemless and my husband and I loved having them be a part of our day. It's like they were our friends hanging out with us at our wedding.

We are so thankful to have found Jesse and Owl & Tree Films. He was the first to show up in the morning, and the last to leave out of our photographers/videographers. He was not only super nice, but he was very thorough, and you could tell he really wanted to capture every... Read More special moment throughout the day. He exceeded our expectations of our wedding video, it turned out way too beautiful for words! He captured every moment beautifully throughout the day, and I thought it was impossible to compress 12 hours into roughly 6 minutes, but he did it! I absolutely love the editing and the way everything was filmed. He let us choose the songs, and he absolutely made it work. We had a blackout towards the end of our reception, and he made it look like it was meant to happen! Everyone was still making the most of the night, and he captured it all. Thank you Owl & Tree for making the blackout something memorable, and not something negative, and for giving us one of the most memorable pieces to remember our special day. We highly recommend Owl & Tree Films, you will not be disappointed!

Words can't even begin to describe how much we love the video Owl & Tree made for our wedding! We didn't know if we wanted to splurge and get a videographer since we had a photographer already and so many of them out there look pretty mediocre. After some research, I found Owl &... Read More Tree on The Knot and after watching a few of their wedding videos online, I knew we had to book them. From the beginning, Jesse was super quick to respond to emails and questions. My husband and I got coffee with Jesse a couple months prior to the wedding so we could ask any more questions about the day of and get to know each other a little bit before spending the most important day of our lives together! I was pretty nervous about having cameras around us all day of the wedding, but Jesse and his wife, Alex, were so sweet and brought a great energy that definitely helped calm any nerves we may have had. We got the film three weeks later and WE ARE IN LOVE WITH IT! It's such high quality and unlike any I've seen anyone else create. Seriously one of the best decisions we made for our wedding, hands down. THANK YOU JESSE AND ALEX!

Simply the BEST, owl and tree is not only extremely talented at what they do, but such a joy to work with. From the initial point of contact to the actual wedding day, Jesse has been so genuinely kind and friendly. He made us feel calm when things were becoming stressful and...

If you are looking for an amazing videographer Jesse with Owl and Tree is your guy! He is simply the best! From our first conversation I knew that his work is exactly what I was looking for. Jesse took the time to get to know me and my husband and our personalities came out... Read More great in the video. He told us he would be there from the very beginning to the end- and he was (along with a great second videographer)! I have gotten so many complements on my wedding video. It's unlike any other. After the wedding he sends some music choices over for the beginning of the video and the end so you can have whatever type of "mood" or "theme" you want. After he sent the video we got all of our wedding footage in a beautiful package along with candy and goodies :). He goes the extra mile! I honestly looked at wedding videos for hours and he was by far the best. Look no further... the search is over. Owl and Tree Films has made us the most amazing video. Thank you so so much!! - Talia and Sam

Owl & Tree is AMAZING! BOOK JESSE NOW! I initially thought adding videographer to the list of vendors was going to be a struggle as we were planning our Lodi wedding from both Los Angeles/Redding, so setting aside time to travel to Lodi/Sacramento to meet vendors was a process.... Read More Jesse said not to worry, answered all questions over phone/email (super quick to respond which is hard to come by with some vendors) until the week of the wedding where he met us via Skype, and immediately put both myself & my husband at ease. He was so calm, cool & collected both during that skype meeting & the wedding itself - he was by far the easiest vendor to work with! On the day of the wedding, it didn't feel like we were being followed around, he blended in so seamlessly and wasn't in the way at any time. Our wedding video is stunning, better than what we could have hoped for - can't thank Owl & Tree enough for creating such a perfect representation of our wedding day that we can cherish for years to come! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

5 stars for Owl & Tree Films. Jesse and his team were awesome through and through. My wife and I chose Owl & Tree because their videos had a clear style & depth to them. It wasn't a typical highlight video; everything about the video (music, camera works, shots) works toward... Read More capturing the emotion and experience of the moment. The video did just that! The product they delivered was far beyond what my wife and I expected. A friend was watching our wedding video, and was approached by a random stranger asking what movie he was watching. She was very surprised to find out it was a wedding video. Also, on your wedding day you want to make sure to have as much positivity around you as possible. Jesse was constantly upbeat, yet very professional. In the few free moments we had to make small talk prior to the wedding, he mentioned how awesome his own marriage was, and how he was just hitting stride in his own relationship. It definitely was added encouragement in my crazy day. I would happily recommend Owl & Tree Films to everyone I know; you can be as fortunate as we were to have them shoot your wedding.

I've always been crazy in love with film making. I fell in love with weddings after I got married to my beautiful adventurous wife. Every time I film a wedding it's like i'm back at my own and it's awesome. Owl & Tree is made up of myself and my wife. We both love adventuring, backpacking, board games, friends, the mountains and coffee.
